The Beginning of PercMaster Publications, LLC
Music for Percussion
During the Spring 2003 semester, an informal meeting took place in the percussion office at Missouri Western State University. In attendance were Dennis Rogers, Director of Percussion Studies at MWSU, Kevin Bobo, adjunct instructor at MWSU and three very gifted and bright students who studied with Dr. Rogers and Mr. Bobo — Tracy Thomas, Jeff Siasoco and Aaron Williams. During this discussion a question became very clear. How can percussionists who are performers, teachers and composers own their intellectual property (compositions), print it, market it and sell it?
